This article incorporates details of our calculations of the observable quantities for the scattering of electrons and positrons from a post transition metal Thallium (Tl), in the energy range of 1 eV ≤ (Formula presented.) ≤ 1 MeV, using the relativistic Dirac partial wave (phase-shift) analysis employing a complex optical-potential. Absolute differential, integrated elastic and inelastic, transport, total ionization, and total cross sections and a thorough study of the critical minima in the elastic differential cross sections along with the associated angular positions of the maximum polarization points in the Sherman function are provided to study the collision dynamics. The optical potential model incorporates the interactions of the incident electron and/or positron with both the nucleus and the bound electrons of the target atom. In-depth analyses of the spin asymmetry, which are sensitive to phases related interference effect, brought on by the various ingredients of the lepton-atom interaction, are also presented. The performance of the current approach to explain the observations, with the exception of the extremely low energy domain, is shown by a comparison of the previous experimental and theoretical results on this target atom.
